Sounds like "snake oil" to me

Wife was talking to a car dealer about a new vehicle and in the course of the discussion, she inquired about rust protection (we live in NY). The dealer proceeded to tell her that they install an electronic (?) rust protection in their new cars. I am having a hard time keeping a strait face, but I thought I had better ask the "experts" . Anyone ever heard of something like this. Sorry I can't be more specific.

rust

rust is an electronic reaction

boats put sacrificial cathodes in their keels, the cathode rots not the keel

Isit possible he was talking about E-coat? That's what the electronically charged bath new cars are dipped in before paint is called. It's short for Electrocoat, I think.
